buttons guide you to the pages written in Japanese.

From the Editor (Toru Nakagawa, Feb. 6, 2010):

This page has not been well updated for these 3-4 years because of my being too busy.  Since it is desirable and necessary to post various TRIZ news and activities in Japan and in the World, I hve decided to rebuild this page and try to keep it active.  The new policy will be:

(1) The top-level categorization is shown in the title part of this page.
(2) This top page serves as the index to the articles of news and activities, each of which is shown in a line of title and its date of posting.
(3) Articles will be posted in appropriate child pages acording the category, descrbed in several lines to half a page each, and arrnged in the date of posting (latest at the top).  Any further details will be posted in separate pages either in HTML or PDF, and links to them will be shown in the article page. 
(4) From this page, a link is made to the Official Pages of the former Japan TRIZ CB (containing the information of the Japan TRIZ Symposium 2005 - 2009).  A new page is made for the index to the articles posted in the Official Site of Japan TRIZ Society (esecilly the articles related to the Japan TRIZ Symposium). 

Recently I have received from various people and organiztions in Japan and in the World communictions on conferences, seminars, publications, software tools, etc.  Such communications/articles expected to be useful for many readers will be posted in English and/or in Japanese.  They are expected to be non-commercial in most cases, but some of them may have some commercial faces as well, I suppose.  Exclusion of such articles entirely may results in the loss of valuable information, I would like to decide the posting on a basis of case by case, considering the fairness and usefulness for the readers.  It is impossible to keep this page exhaustive in listing up various TRIZ news and activities, and to guarantee quick posting.  Please use this page, under such limitations.  By refering to the original Web sites of each oganization listed in the Links page (in the World), you may see their latest news and articles.
